I believe he was referring to America or other well off countries.

There are some people who hate their country due to the government are simply corrupt and are unwillingly to help the public.

Does that make you laugh?

People who are excessively proud of their country make me laugh.

I think what he's getting at is that people who hate the country they live in are pretty much screwed. It is actually a little funny if you think about it.

I find a bit of humor from people who live in North America or Europe who hate the USA, simply because it's very likley that they're using an American product. That and the fact that most of them don't really have a valid point to make, and just regurgitate some old piece of propoganda that they found on the internet. I'd say that most of what is said about America is an exagerration, or just plain BS. However when someone does make a valid point, I tend to agree with them to some extent.

Re: Is Anti-Americanism Cool?

I had to say yes but only because of no middle option.
A few reasons why:

America, the nation of lard guzzling fattys. Britain might go the same way soon though.

America start wars with 3rd world countrys and instead of revealing their real reasons make up something else like 'weapons of mass destruction' . Saddam Hussein needed to be gotten rid of, why not just say that?

Also, America seem to see themselves as the greatest nation in the world, those weapons they apparently went to stop are the same kind America has several hundred of at least. They're entitled to them but other countries aren't?

Lastly, torture. Waterboarding definitely IS torture and keeping people locked up in Gauntanamo without any real evidence for years should not be allowed. Especially when they're not even american citizens!

As I understand it Obama is trying to get rid of the last point but no, anti-americanism is not gone yet.

Not when your belief is wrong. Holding to your principles is hardly admirable when your principles are horrendously flawed.

Re: Is Anti-Americanism Cool?

it's not the right time to be sober
now the idiots have taken over
spreading like a social cancer, is there an answer?

Mensa membership conceding
tell me why and how are all the stupid people breeding
Watson, it's really elementary
the industrial revolution
has flipped the ***** on evolution
the benevolent and wise are being thwarted, ostracized, what a bummer
the world keeps getting dumber
insensitivity is standard and faith is being fancied over reason

darwin's rollin over in his coffin
the fittest are surviving much less often
now everything seems to be reversing, and it's worsening
someone flopped a steamer in the gene pool
now angry mob mentality's no longer the exception, it's the rule
and I'm startin to feel a lot like charlton heston
stranded on a primate planet
apes and orangutans that ran it to the ground
with generals and the armies that obeyed them
followers following fables
philosophies that enable them to rule without regard

there's no point for democracy when ignorance is celebrated
political scientists get the same one vote as some Arkansas inbred
majority rule, don't work in mental institutions
sometimes the smallest softest voice carries the grand biggest solutions

what are we left with?
a nation of god-fearing pregnant nationalists
who feel it's their duty to populate the homeland
pass on traditions
how to get ahead religions
And prosperity via simpleton culture

the idiots are takin over

You do realize that nations like the UK, Russia, Austrailia, Canada, and pretty much all of the EU have obesity rates that are only moderatley lower than America's, right? It's like a 200 pound man calling a 230 pound man a fatass.

You seem to be confusing America with Bush.

What are you talking about? Russia, China, the UK, India, and Pakistan all have nuclear weapons.

Guantanamo is being closed and the toruring has stopped.
